How to Get the Most out of Your Heating Installation

In rainy towns like Bellevue, heating installation services need to be performed correctly the first time, every time. Our weather doesn’t forgive shoddy workmanship, and if your heater struggles because the installation wasn’t spot on, you’ll find yourself paying much more than you should in monthly bills and repair costs. Finding a good HVAC technician for the job is a good first step, but you can go further by educating yourself about what goes into a quality heater. Here’s how to get the most out of your heating installation.

For starters, make sure the technician you’ve hired is fully qualified and ready for the job. Licensed, certified servicemen will prepare for the job diligently and keep you informed every step of the way. They’ll treat your home like your own, and double-check their work so that your new heater performs exactly as it should.

Selecting the right heater can play a big part in this as well. You want one that is neither too large nor too small, but just right for the size and conditions of your house. A good technician can measure the square footage of your home, as well as noting such elements as sun exposure and the insulation in your attic. If you’re getting a new type of furnace, he should make sure that your ducts and lines are compatible with it, and keep things like the foundation size in mind when making his preparations.

An efficient heater is a good idea too. Heater efficiency is measured in AFUE ratings, which stands for “Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency.” The higher the rating, the more efficient the heater, though you can cheat a bit by looking for the EnergyStar sticker which is given out to the most efficient heaters on the market.
